AbstractThis paper presents a model-based approach to facilitate the implementation of integrated software systems that can support bridge design processes throughout the project lifecycle. The approach involves the use of an integrated data model and a centralized project data repository, where project data can be efficiently managed and shared across various project processes. An integrated bridge data model, based on the ISO STEP standards, has been developed. Four main views (or sub-schemas) have been identified to support the core model: structural design, structural analysis, construction scheduling, and cost estimating. An object-oriented project repository is implemented based on the proposed data model. The prototype software aims to support the design of concrete box girder bridges.
